I have looked through the demos and examples within SAP, but still have not found anything I thought appropriate for the type of mass-updating programs I write. Design Patterns is interesting but of course it is a dialog program with lots of user interaction.
Do you know where I can find decent examples of batch processing programs which use and take advantage of classes, methods, inheritance, implementation, and events; i.e., the concepts that fully use the OO advantages?
If you have never developed using OO techniques, then I'd suggest NOT starting with ABAP. Rather go through a good Java tutorial, for example Head First Java by Kathy Sierra is excellent. Once you've learned about OO programming, then you can start applying it to the SAP environment. The more recent the release, the easier it is. The new dimension products also contain large amounts of object-oriented development.
